It was seriously like Christmas morning when I woke up and checked Facebook, and saw that runDisney has finally put out their 2019-2020 event calendar. I have been waiting & waiting & waiting & waiting for this. No joke.
Last week, runDisney posted about the 2019 marathon weekend and naturally I asked if they planned on ever letting us know what the 2020 dates would be. I was not real happy with the answer…
But who cares, that’s in the past (and I never look back, darling, it distracts from the now). Now we have race dates and registration dates through Star Wars Rival Run Weekend 2020. YESSS!
runDisney Virtual Series: June 1 – August 31, 2019 (registration: May 7, 2019)
Disneyland Paris Run Weekend: September 19-22, 2019 (packages now available)
Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend: October 31 – November 3, 2019 (registration: March 19, 2019)
Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend: January 8-12, 2020 (registration: April 16, 2019)
Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend: February 20-23, 2020 (registration: June 4, 2019)
Star Wars Virtual Half Marathon: January 3 – March 31, 2020 (registration: July 16, 2019)
Star Wars Rival Run Weekend: April 16-19, 2020 (registration: July 16, 2019)
Hey, lookit! Please note that registration opens at 10:00am EST on each registration date. This is new, as in the past it was at noon EST. I’m personally ambivalent to the change, but it does mean early morning registration for those on the West Coast.
Also note, as of right now, there is no word on when early registration for Disney Vacation Club members or Annual Passholders would be, or even if there will be early registration at all. I did check the member benefits for both groups and didn’t see anything. I assume (I hope) there will be, but we won’t know until closer to registration date I suppose.
I’ve already blocked out dates on my planner for when I need to book our hotel for marathon weekend 2020. I am so excited!!
